Thursday was the perfect day for a trip to the beach and a shot in the arm.
Dozens of people got the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine Thursday on the first day of a two-day pop-up clinic at shot North Beach. The clinic is another push by Burlington officials to make it more accessible. No appointments were required — and that convenience was key for many who stopped by to be vaccinated.
“It was very fast and easy,” said Shannon Harkey. “I think going to where people are is going to make a big difference instead of people having to take time off work or drive. It’s where someone already is.”
The clinic will be back at North Beach Friday from 12 to 2:30 p.m. A second pop-up clinic is scheduled for Saturday on Church Street.
